Retraction of 3 scientific papers = crazy fraud + sad editor #retractionwatch

Retraction Watch has a terrific summary of a recent triple retraction at PLOS One. Check out the article for lots more info and the blog itself for information on scientific publication retractions. Sad that this is the state of science right now, especially for editors that are blindsided by blatant fraud, but how encouraging that people report these issues and retractions ultimately happen.

This one comes to us from Twitter, where Willem van Schaik went to express his frustration that a PLOS ONE paper he’d edited had been retracted for fake data.

Some of the tweets from the editor (@WVSchaik):
